“Unlevel sites, tight rutted roads on the side of a big hill, not made for big rigs”

The website does not offer any kind of road map to indicate where you will actually access the RV sites. There’s a hand drawn “map” of the sites but not to scale, and there’s not a single access road shown anywhere on the map. Google earth/maps is no better as the area is completely covered with trees so you can’t see any of the roads or sites there either.

This is not the place to stay if you have a big rig. The turn into the park is extremely tight and flanked by a wooden fence on both sides. The roads are all dirt roads, very “hilly”, and with deep ruts to navigate. Not a great start.

There’s no way you could tow a car behind you and get in. Fortunately, there’s a large marina parking lot a couple hundred yards away where you can unhook. We arrived after hours but had a friend there already to help us find our spot.

The first site they put us at was so unlevel (front to back) that the coach tried to lift the front wheels a foot off the ground! And it STILL wasn’t even close to level! We obviously couldn’t stay lifted that high so we had to put the wheels back down. It was so bad that we couldn’t put the slides out that night for fear of never getting them back in again. Our friend who was with us in a camper couldn’t unhook his camper from his truck for fear of the camper sliding down the hill into the lake (seriously!).

The next day they moved us to site 115 which was a concrete pad (one of very few concrete pads anywhere in here) that was closer to level. But no sewer hookups. And the water front lots are all 30 amp only. But at least we got to put the slides out. There are lots of full timers throughout the park, many with full decks built around their campers. The place is full of towable campers & that’s really what it was designed for. We definitely won’t stay here again.

Wifi was decent (if you have a good wifi antenna on your roof). We got 5 mbps down & 3 mbps up. We didn’t try the cable. Verizon was 2-3 bars so it worked well enough.

The Hogg Mine is about 15 min away. That’s why we came here. Had a great day at the mine, collecting tons of rose quartz & some other stones as well. Highly recommended day trip! ($35 per person)

“Needed to be updated at least a decade ago. Drastically over priced for quality of the sites... but hey, they have a Lake.”

We had much higher hopes for this place, but given a huge booking folly I made at another park, we were stuck here for a week. The park seems to be doing well as far as attendance, especially on warm weekends, but it seems not much of the profits are going back into maintaining the park. The electrical box was quite sketchy, the sewer hookup was busted off so I had to pile rocks on top of my elbow to keep it somewhat sealed, the "paved" pad was cracked, and crumbling apart, and the garbage cans were uncovered leaving the raccoons to tear through it every night. Luckily since we had a full hookup site and we didn't have to visit the bathrooms, one can only imagine the shape that they were in.

You are on a lake... not the best Georgia lake, but its a lake. Being that, it can be quite the redneck fest. Fully stocked with monster trucks of all variety, all having equally obnoxious exhaust systems, plenty of Bud Light, and lots of yelling (both adults and kids). The plus side to the Georgia redneck is they always seem nice, are willing to share their Bud Light, and if you need assistance fixing something, they will see it done.

Also the website talks about "miles of hiking trails" but every trailhead sign we found was so over grown, we didn't even try.
